MOCKUP – Everything, Everywhere, All At Once (2022)

Everything, Everywhere, All At Once (2022)

#1. Everything, Everywhere, All At Once

"A force-of-life.  Of nearly anything and everything, all at once.  An Asian-American love note, made with heart and aimed at the stars.  Love, The Daniels."

One cannot truly prepare themselves for Everything, Everywhere, All At Once.

It is a film full of nearly anything and everything, all at once.  An Asian-American love note, made with heart and aimed at the stars.  Love, The Daniels.

Michelle Yeoh has become, in her multi-decade international career, an undeniable actress.  Undeniable in the sense that she's accomplished what all actors hope to achieve.  And that is to endure.

Through Mandarin, Cantonese, Singaporean, and the universal language of Hollywood, she has crafted a career not only through her unmatched physicality, but her sincerity.  A dynamo, as deadly with her hands as she is with her words.  And in that regard, she is peer-less.

And what a return for Ke Huy Quan.  Fully himself and a force of life, he is in no exaggeration whatsoever, one of the most likable actors to have ever graced the silver screen.  And for a moment there, I thought I was seeing a young Tony Leung on screen.

Everything, Everywhere, All At Once was a bit like seeing my own life reflected back at me.  The hard parts, the sacrifices of an immigrant household, that not everyone gets to see.

To see a film like that, one that is crazy, messy, and complex, capture the hearts and imagination of millions in the same way, that's what makes a movie, truly universal.
